Remus, the gentleman that runs The Woodpile Report, is someone whose insights are well worth considering. This is an excerpt from a recent posting of his that really hit the nail on the head. If you're not regularly reading this fellow's musings you're missing a free dose of damn good sense.
Take special note of the Department of Homeland Security. It very nearly stands apart from government proper. The 'best fit' is the Sicherheitsdienst, with a touch of Red Cross for cover. The DHS repeatedly reveals itself as malevolent, incompetent, devious and gratuitously violent. It's beyond libel, no surprise, the place is a honeypot for ambitious political preeners, affirmative action incompetents and time-serving misfits, in short, a settling pond for overachieving sociopaths and their sycophants. You'll have no difficulty so bad they won't make it worse and feel good doing it. You have no rights DHS is bound to respect and it has a talent for inventing new forms of terrorism to discover. Also be aware the upper reaches of DHS have a reputation for preferring aggressive sexual deviants, currently displayed most overtly in the weird bullying and outright molestation of innocents by the TSA. With the absolute power a national calamity would confer on them, and assuming continued support from a reportedly compromised White House , the entire DHS is poised to become an armed pimpocracy.
